Mason: 2 Months Old!

Tomorrow marks Mason's 2 month birthday! It's insane that he is 2 months already! It seems impossible that it has gone by fast, yet at the same time, it almost seems like it's going by slower this time around, which I love since it gives me more time to soak it all up before he gets too big!

The stomach bug has FINALLY left our home for good! Okay, well who knows if it's for good since I'm sure there will be many more stomach bugs in our future, but at least for a LONG time, it's GONE! It left Connor 2 days ago or so, but I still kind of had it up until yesterday. Yesterday was the first day I felt GREAT and had a great night's sleep the night before, so I knew it was done for me. Mason hasn't gotten it, so far, so good!

The last couple of days have consisted of cleaning and disinfecting the entire house to kill the sick, nasty germs, and getting all the nasty laundry done from the kids diarrhea and throw up and germy clothes and sheets and things. Yuck!

Mason had his 2 month check up yesterday! He weighs 11 lbs., 5 ounces and is 23.5 inches long! Such a big boy!

He is smiling a ton, and cooing too. I love his little cooing noises he makes when he's content and happy and has a fully belly, of course. He LOVES Merasia. I'm sure he likes Connor too, but when Merasia gets down to his level and says "Hello baby" he smiles real big and coos back at her. So sweet!

He still wakes up quite a bit at night, but that's to be expected and I don't mind. He still doesn't fill up properly on just breast milk, so we are still supplementing with 4-6 ounces of formula after each feeding if he seems to need it to top him off some. He nurses all night since he normally ends up in bed with me because I'm too exhausted to care LOL Not a habit I am happy with, but exhaustion takes over sometimes and I can't help it. I'll break it soon, I promise! ;-)

Other than that, he is thriving and just an absolute joy. He did have to suffer through his first round of shots though, and there were terrible. He has never cried so much in his short little life, not even when he was born! His face got so red, his eyes welled up with tears, and he cried and screamed SO. HARD! It broke my heart in teeny tiny pieces! :-( Thankfully it was all over within seconds, I nursed him, and all was forgotten.

(An update on the twins coming soon!)
